|Title:||ATOMISTIC COMPUTER-SIMULATION OF THE GROWTH OF HELIUM PLATELETS IN NICKEL||Authors:||D'OLIESLAEGER, Marc

The results of these simulations show that a helium-filled aggregate tends to expel neighbouring atoms at its outer edges. These emitted atoms are displaced in the direction of a nearest octahedral position and it is established that they are bound to the cluster. The results indicate that a helium-filled aggregate tends to grow in a planar way and that an interstitial loop is formed by the emitted atoms. The two-dimensional growth occurs parallel with the closed-packed planes.||Notes:||DOLIESLAEGER, M, LIMBURGS UNIV CENTRUM,MAT RES INST,DIV MAT PHYS,UNIV CAMPUS,B-3590 DIEPENBEEK,BELGIUM.||Document URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/1942/3907||ISI #:||A1991FV81200011||Type:||Journal Contribution|
